The Endometriosis Summit invites the world to use their voices to drive endometriosis forward during a three-day interactive exploration of endometriosis and pelvic pain
This year’s event is an endometriosis extravaganza featuring interactive workshops, lab trainings for surgeons and physical therapists, research based panels on gaslighting, leg pain, and self compassion, video sessions, surgical didactics open to both patients and practitioners, a breakdown of sleep and its effects on chronic pain, and of course, our signature Patient and Practitioner Town Meeting. Plus the first Endo Summit Social, a showing of Below the Belt under the stars, networking, and connection to our endometriosis community.
We curated a weekend to delve into nearly every aspect of endometriosis, perfect for those newly introduced to endometriosis and for experts alike.
Connect to others.
Understand endometriosis from diagnosis to whole body healing-as a patient and as a practitioner.
Change the narrative.
All days are open to BOTH patients and practitioners. Labs and select activities are more appropriate for licensed professionals.

Come one, come all to The Endometriosis Summit’s Patient and Practitioner Town Meeting. Our signature event features panels on policy, surgery, gaslighting, fertility, leg pain, and life with endometriosis. We gather the endometriosis community to change the narrative of endometriosis. For those who have the disease, those who treat the disease, and those who love and support people with endometriosis this is the place to be a societal disruptor. This year we introduce a Miscarriage and Fertility support group, held separate from the MainStage to reduce triggering and provide privacy. There is a patient lead panel, based in lived experience and research on gaslighting. We investigate leg pain. All in our Town Hall, Open Mic format.
*Please note, Endo Summit Town Meeting discussions are for theory and education—not personal case discussion.
